Covid-19 deaths reveal ageist perceptions of seniors, which affects the care they receive (Washington Post)

The Washington Post (via The Conversation) featured commentary by Paul Nash of the USC Leonard Davis School and colleagues on how ageism harms older adults, especially during the coronavirus pandemic. “The COVID-19 emergency gives us the opportunity to examine health inequalities in the U.S. It gives us a chance to look again at the way Americans view and treat older people. And it lets us look at how pitting generations against one another only leads to disaster,” they wrote.
